austriamicrosystems' business unit Full Service Foundry has announced the extension of its foundry technology portfolio with the addition of an advanced low threshold (LVT) CMOS process option based on its 0.35m analog CMOS (also known as C35) technology.

According to the company, the new LVT process option offers a set of 3.3V and 5V NMOS and PMOS devices with threshold voltages as low as 0.4V, while keeping all other MOS and bipolar devices unchanged.

Wide supply voltage range of 1.2-5.5V, high integration density and optimization for high-speed makes the 0.35m LVT CMOS process suitable for high-performance analog standard products such as supervisory circuits for microprocessors implemented in portable applications. The strong market growth in handheld applications is driving an increasing demand for products utilizing the LVT process option.

"Device performance and rigorous modularity were our key objectives in developing this set of advanced LVT devices. Any combination with existing CMOS, high-voltage CMOS, embedded EEPROM or Flash processes are possible," explained Martin Schrems of the company's director process development and implementation.

The LVT process option is complemented by analog characterization and circuit simulation models implemented in HIT-Kit, austriamicro's easy-to-use design environment. In addition to accurate silicon models, the HIT-Kit includes rigorous design rule and layout verification run sets, digital and analog libraries as well as a full set of memory blocks.
